Cabinet refacing is a great option for those with good cabinet frames that just need to replace their doors and drawers, laminating the cabinet boxes in the new color & style. Huge budget-friendly option!


Your countertop choice will alter the budget drastically. Some stone options can eat up almost half of the budget. When deciding on countertop material, make sure you have expanded the budget to allow and be reasonable. If you are ok with a manmade material, Corian (Solid Surface) Private Collection is much more economical and has the look of honed stones. It's just as durable as stone's and offers that rich and sophisticated look homeowners want.

Wonderful article. Achievable steps for those of us who don't have $40 000 for expert renovators. I really like realistic ideas for the average household.

Centre islands must have amazing storage . Ideas please.
